Services Tuesday Culver, Ray Win Gazette Straw Poll Those who voted (3,271 ballots were cast) in The Gazette's straw poll at the All-Iowa fair that ended a 10-day run Sunday, indicated they favor: — Congressman John Culver, Cedar Rapids Democrat, over State Rep. David Stanley, Mils catine Republican, for U.S. senator, 2,120 to 1,051. — Gov. Robert Ray, Des Moines Republican, over State Sen. James Schaben, Dunlap Democrat, for governor, 1,711 to I,490. — Democratic congressional candidates over Republicans, 1,543 to 1,053, but the vote is not reflective of the state as a whole since a big majority of those easting ballots; listed their residences as being in the Second district. 69 Counties Voters of 69 of Iowa’s 99 counties participated in the poll and only 25 of the 3,271 ballots were spoiled, leaving 3,246 valid ones. Although no claims are made for the poll except that it reflects the sentiments of only those who took the time to cast ballots, its results have been an accurate barometer of the outcome of general elections since it was started in 1952. In this connection, it must be taken into consideration that, with a majority of votes coming from the Second district, it was logical that Culver — who has represented the district since 1965 — would receive considerably more votes than Stanley who lives in the First district. Straight Ticket Culver’s 2 to I lead over Stanley resulted from 1,302 straight Democratic votes, 669 votes by those who split their ballots for Democrat Culver and Republican Ray, and the rest from votes cast for Culver alone, for Culver-Schaben, or for Culver Democratic congressional candidate. Stanley received 830 straight Republican votes, 85 from those who split their ballots for him and Democrat Schaben for governor, and the remainder from votes cast for him and Ray, for Stanley alone, or for Stanley and the Republican congressional candidate. Ray received the 830 straight Republican votes plus 881 from split tickets, while Schaben got the 1.302 straight Democratic votes plus 188 from split ballots. Vote Totals Broken down by districts, here are the congressional vote totals: First — Democratic candidate (Congressman Edward Mez-v i n s k y ) over Republican (James Leach), 191 to 133. Second — Democratic candidate (State Sen. Michael Blouin) over Republican (State Sen. Tom Riley), 1,473 to 748. Third — Democratic candidate (State Rep.
